Foscarini Caboche – elaborately shaped object of illumination with attractive lighting effect
Caboche lamps by the venerable Italian manufacture Foscarini
, located in Venice, which is considered the cradle of glassblower's art, fascinate through their special look and therefore act as true eye catchers.
A ring of mouth-blown, transparent or gold-coloured globes made of polymethylmetacrylate that encircle an internal glass diffuser is the trade mark of this timeless and dignified family of lamps by Foscarini. The extravagant visual texture is responsible for the fascinating lighting effect of each Foscarini Caboche
: When this bowl of sparkling illumination exponentiates the light of a, for example, Foscarini Caboche Sospensione
and creates a not commonplace reflection on the wall, one is left with no choice but to stop and admire this luminaire. Or when a Foscarini Caboche Tavolo table lamp provides for atmospheric zone lighting on a sideboard or a cabinet and thus lends a bedroom or a living room a charming ambience. The clear version can be applied almost in any space, whereas the gold variant is more suitable for extravagant interiors.
Thanks to a steadily strong demand, the Foscarini Caboche
family is well on the way to become a design classic consisting of table lamps, pendants, ceiling lights and floor lamps. They all add uniquely atmospheric lighting accents in your home. The pendant light
of this series, the Foscarini Caboche Sospensione
, is optionally available in three (piccola, media and grande) different sizes and is ideally suited for the illumination of dining and living rooms. The exceptionally successful realisation of a symbiosis between extravagant design and playful elegance represents a visual enhancement of any environment. The thin feed cables of the Caboche pendant light
are almost invisible and give it a weightless and floating appearance. Permanently mounted, the ceiling light
Foscarini Caboche Soffitto shines down from the ceiling as the perfect fusion of its constituents made of chrome-plated metal and acrylic glass and from there spreads its softly shimmering flare. As an alluring general lighting, it brightens bedroom, living or dining room.
Foscarini Caboche Terra media
and Foscarini Caboche Terra grande
are a part of the collection too. Fixed on a white lacquered metal structure, the Floor lamps
remind of brightly shining light houses, whose harmonious light dynamics goes well with the artful appearance. So a Caboche floor lamp
always represents itself as an attractive highlight in the space without being too obtrusive. An integrated dimmer helps you to regulate the extensive light that shines off this Foscarini lamp as you wish or need.
Like the fixtures here, the Foscarini Caboche Parete
is also far more than just a decorative lighting accessory. This wall light
lets the light slip through its spheres and the spaces between them in a captivating way and thus realises fascinating general lighting not only in the bedroom, but also in the hallway, dining room or kitchen.
